You can assign keyboard shortcuts on the Mac too, it's just a little less intuitive --
The OS will automatically show you the shortcut in the menu now.
When I was doing it, I couldn't find "Show Data Table" in the menus for some reason, but if you click on the "Help" menu and type in a few words into the search box, then down-arrow down through the results, it'll show you where in the menus a command lives. Pretty cool.
The setting up of Hot Keys in MacOs it is truly very easy, fast and straightforward. Nevertheless, there is a big setback:
By fortune there is Keyboard Maestro
This isn't a Mac-specific problem -- there are always limits on the number of possible combinations with only a few modifier keys.
My sense is that there are more keys open on the Mac than on Windows, given that the Mac has ctrl, option, cmd but the Windows key on Windows is weird, and alt does a lot of system-level stuff on Windows.
